*Squeeeee!!!* You totally made it a pangolin this time, and that's not just me extrapolating design choices, lol. I've been waiting to see this redesign ever since our little chat about it way back when on your initial design for Social Anxiety. One of these days, I'm going to have to commission someone to make a plush of this and Depression to send to you. This one would have to have to be able to curl up into a ball of course, lol. Alternatively, I would have to learn how to sew and do it myself.
Aww, thank you! That means a lot to have even a small part in the work that you do.
It's too bad that they never got back to you about making plushies of the monsters. Their loss.
Yeah, pangolins are pretty interesting. I think I happened upon some info on them when I was about 14 and they've been on my list of favorite animals ever since, so I'm always excited when I see them anywhere because so few people even know they exist. So...you're welcome that my secret love of pangolins caused me to misinterpret your initial design as one, which in turn gave you the idea to redesign it actually as one. So thank you for allowing me to be appropriately giddy about pangolins whenever I look at (or even think of) Social Anxiety. I think it's the best way to work through issues with social anxiety ever, and is more proof that your work is actually helping people.
I think that it's such a wonderful thing that you as an artist, have been able to create something that addresses these illnesses with respect, understanding, and even a sense of humor that has had such a positive effect on not only the people who personally struggle with them on a daily basis and their friends and families, but even people who have never experienced or encountered these may see your work and think about mental illness in a way they never have before.
